PostSubject: Engine Removal   Mon Nov 30, 2015 5:57 pm

Hey folks
I'm still in the early stages of stripping down my very 'sorry for itself' Intruder 800. I'm pretty much at the point now of removing the engine so I've been reading the Haynes manual but it's a bit woolly to say the least!
I can see the section of frame that needs to come off and pretty much all the engine mounting bolts but what 'm not sure about is the drive shaft assembly.
With the rubber boot clamp loosened and pulled back a little I still can't see much. Is there a universal joint there to be undone or is it a splined shaft that will simply slide out as I remove the engine?
Sorry to sound a bit dumb but it's my first shaft driven bike so my knowledge runs out here!
Cheers all
Gareth

Hi Gareth, there's a universal joint inside the rubber boot at the front of the swing arm.

Oh, It's splines too, I've never taken one off but it might be easier to remove the 3 nuts holding the diff and slide the shaft and diff out first before removing the engine.
